Also, Life and Death. It was a surgery simulator which I didn't have the manual for (ahem). I don't think a single one of my patients survived.

Heart of China was a hilarious Indiana Jones style adventure game. It's a point and click that plays something like a visual novel, with multiple branching paths and some dopey action sequences. It still holds up well.
The Sensible Software (Sensible Soccer, Cannon Fodder) games were best on Amiga, as were The Bitmap Brothers games (Magic Pockets, Xenon 2) but those games had (inferior) ports elsewhere.
Revenge of the Mutant Camels might've been exclusive. It was pretty nuts as I recall.
The Last Days. Not that boring Kurt Cobain thing, but a Spanish post apocalyptic film about everyone in the world getting fatal agoraphobia - if they go outside they have a heart attack. Better than it sounds, at one point they fight a bear in a church, which is awesome. 9/10.
@Akyho It's a familiar story. Finding work in Australia was tough too but luckily there's a big demand for English teachers in Japan. Right enough though, given the state of the world's economic markets anyone could lose their job and not be able to afford their Internet any more, or new games for that matter, so it seems very short sighted of Microsoft to have introduce these restrictions right now of all times.
I move around a lot. Back home in Scotland (I left 3 years ago) I didn't have the Internet because I was too broke. I moved to Australia and ran the Internet from an incredibly expensive and slow dongle for a year because my apartment didn't have a phone line. I live in Japan now and finally have the Internet speed required to run an Xbone, only they aren't releasing it here because Microsoft are a punch line in Japan. Although I've been a 360 owner for 4 years now I can't purchase the new console, but I probably wouldn't anyway, so who cares? It's not for me.
<p> @patrickklepek Will we get something about the 1up closure from you next week Tricky? Sad times, though many considered the golden years to be long past I still had a lot of time for the few, talented guys that were left there. I was wondering what your take on it was, especially considering your history with the site.</p>
